Default Annoying Outlook Express message

Every time I reboot, I get an annoying Outlook Express message about compacting my OE messages. Outlook Express was installed with Office 2003, but I am using Thunderbird and have never started Outlook Express.

Add/Remove software does not show me Outlook Express, so I don't know how to uninstall it. There must be a way to not get that message, and I am hoping someone here knows how to do that.

Message is attached.

OE was never an Office program but was formerly part of Windows. You should look at the opportunities for removing Windows features.

Any version before Vista, for which the name was changed to Mail. Windows 7 has only something quite different, as you presumably know; but I use Outlook, and possibly you do too.

Actually I was asking dthomsen8 what version of Windows since where you go to remove Windows Components changed after XP -- not sure with VISTA but definitely in Windows 7.

I see that Robin pointed to the location in XP.

Turning Windows on or off is under Programs and Features in Windows 7 and Vista, but Windows 7 does not provide any e-mail client other than its Live Essentials Messenger—a retrograde step in my opinion.

It's Windows Live Mail and it's not included in Windows 7. You have to download it. You don't have to download other Windows Live programs if you don't want them. They are individually selectable for download.

You can use any mail client you want to that runs under Windows 7. I've used Opera's built-in e-mail client for years and it's what I use in Windows 7 and every other Windows and Linux OS I have installed.

Yes you can, but all other versions of Windows provided one.

Judy,

You may remember my post elsewhere in which I gave my experience that when I went to get Windows Live Mail the webpage told me that it was free ,,, if I accepted advertising in the messages but otherwise I would have to pay to get Gmail, I think it was.

There was some dispute about this happening but it did for me. So I downloaded Thunderbird and it's installed fine with only a little puzzlement on how to create a new folder by name so I could put Norton labeled Spam in its usual Norton AntiSpam folder and put Junk mail there too.

I haven't used it a lot but it at least looks similar to Outlook Express and won't puzzle Dottie unnecessarily.
